Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Wentworth Miller’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Wentworth Miller and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Wentworth Miller production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Wentworth Miller’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Wentworth Miller and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

Scenes written in proper format
Wentworth Miller – Scenes hold good pacing (shorter in the end)
Scenes contain emotional stakes
But of course, its going to get a lot more complicated than that. [33:15]
Wentworth Miller – CENTRAL QUESTION: This is a murder mystery, and the question is: Will Jake figure out who killed Mulwray without being killed himself?
And finally we learn why the cops are here: Mulwray is dead, drowned in the reservoir. Fabulous ACT ONE CLIMAX: the corpse hits the floor, as they say about mystery novels. Note the one shoe missing from the corpse and missing glasses.
[31:42] We meet Lieutenant Escobar, who is investigating whatever is going on at the reservoir. This scene and character are important for Jakes BACKSTORY, GHOST, INNER and OUTER DESIRE. Escobar is Jakes MIRROR the man he could have been, in the position Jake could have been in now, had he stayed on the force. Escobar got out of Chinatown without quitting the force and rose in the police department from there. Theres a sense of Jakes regret, here. Escobar is a character who will serve as both an antagonist, sometimes, and as an ally. Its terrific storytelling that Jakes backstory is dramatized, brought to life with characters from his past. And the character who serves as the hero/ines mirror is also a great storytelling trick to keep in mind; when it works well, as here, it really reveals a lot about your main character.
